Is the CEL light on? It is possible it has gone in to "limp mode", that happens when a fault is detected and the engine power is reduced to allow you to get home, off the road, a safe place, but prevent further serious damage. I suggest getting your OBD codes read at a large parts store, that is just a possibility what I describe. They will do it free. write the codes down. they will be "P" followed by 4 numbers, bring them back here. Let's see if my guess is right
